RMIT University is a global university of technology, design and enterprise, creating life-changing experiences for students and shaping the future of education.

At RMIT, we believe that practical, real-world skills and applied knowledge set our graduates apart. By creating transformative learning experiences that connect learners to the world of work beyond university, RMIT empowers students to make an impact and discover new frontiers in their industries.

The university provides access to modern learning, state-of-the-art facilities and industry-connected teachers and mentors. Our internships, placements and work experience opportunities let students put theory into practice alongside some of the world’s leading organisations.

RMIT’s teaching, learning and research programs are continually updated so that students are equipped to meet the challenges of the 21st century. At the same time, as one of Australia’s original educational institutions established in 1887, we have remained true to our original philosophy, “Perita manus, mens exculta” – a skilled hand, a cultivated mind.

Designed alongside industry and developed with future workforce demands in mind, our courses blend academic excellence with industry insight.

As a student, you’ll have opportunities to study under the guidance of some of the world’s brightest academic leaders and benefit from RMIT’s close partnerships with industry. Access to industry mentoring gives you the opportunity to learn directly from professionals, and work-integrated learning will allow you to use what you learn in the classroom in real-life scenarios. You might find yourself in an industry internship or working on a real project for one of RMIT’s community partners.

With three campuses in Melbourne (City, Brunswick and Bundoora), two in Vietnam (Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City) and a research centre in Barcelona, Spain, as well as educational and industry partnerships across the world, RMIT is a truly global university. And with over 450 internationally-recognised qualifications on offer, RMIT’s graduates are well-positioned to create networks and careers that span the globe.

As a dual sector university, RMIT also provides you with more than one way to get the qualification you want. Pathways exist between diplomas, associate degrees and bachelor’s degrees, helping you to progress from one qualification to another.

E-mail address: study@rmit.edu.au

Access & equity through VTAC (SEAS)

RMIT considers the full range of SEAS categories in the selection of students for certificate, diploma, advanced diploma, associate degree and degree courses. The SEAS application is one way of ensuring that the impact of background and circumstances on your previous educational achievement is understood and taken into consideration in the selection process.

SEAS applicants may receive an adjustment in the calculation of their selection rank of up to 20, depending on the SEAS category and level of disadvantage. If you are a Year 12 student at an RMIT SNAP school you are encouraged to apply through SEAS Category 1 to receive an equity adjustment of up to 20. In courses that select on a range of criteria such as folio or interview, SEAS and SNAP applicants will receive consideration on their performance in these tasks.

Selection principles

Applicants are selected fairly according to formally approved admission standards and in accordance with the approved selection methodology for the program.

RMIT courses have documented, rigorous and properly approved selection methodology for assessment of an applicant's capacity for success in the course. This may include elements such as minimum academic requirements and selection tasks.

For more information see the admission and credit processes policy.

Folios, supplementary information and selection kits

Work submitted must represent the applicant's ideas and abilities, show originality, innovation, imagination, experimentation and competence in skills relevant to the course. Instructions are provided in individual course entries.

For more information, read about how to complete selection tasks.

Pathways into courses

Pathways provide a range of entry and exit points to courses. Pathways can be achieved in a number of ways including linking existing qualifications.

For example you may be able to study a different course first to gain the credits needed for entry into your first choice, or you may be able to use your TAFE or training qualification as a pathway to higher education at university.

For more information, read about pathways to higher education.

Additional information

Indigenous Access Program

RMIT's Indigenous Access Program is managed by the Ngarara Willim Centre for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples. Through an interview process, we consider your capacity and capability for success for entry into your chosen program based on several factors, including academic history, rather than ATAR.

For Indigenous Access Program applicants, the English study score for admission to bachelor degree programs is 5 points lower than the published study score for the course.

Work integrated learning (WIL)

Work Integrated Learning (WIL) is designed to integrate academic learning with practical workplace experiences.

It includes placements, internships, projects with industry, and workplace simulations.

Students may be required to obtain a successful Police Check, Working with Children Check and/or receive specific immunisations and/or health screenings in order to participate in the work experience/industry placement component of their course.


Successful applicants will have a record generated in RMIT's student administration system which automatically creates a student email account. RMIT's email system is externally provided by Google on a secure domain with privacy protections to prevent unauthorised access or use.

For more information about privacy visit the RMIT University website.

Successful applicants will be advised via email (to the email address supplied in their VTAC Course Application) with offer information and details about when and how to enrol.

For more information, read the new student guide.

Vocational education pre-training review

The Victorian and Australian Governments require all new students to complete a pre-training review and an online language, literacy and numeracy evaluation before enrolment. This allows RMIT to:

  • Establish that the course into which you are enrolling will meet your educational support needs, and
  • Determine your eligibility for VET Student Loans (VSL)

Successful applicants will be provided with further details about these requirements prior to enrolment.

For more information, download the vocational education student pretraining review PDF.

Literacy and Numeracy Test

You need to complete the Language, Literacy and Numeracy assessment (LLN) as part of the eligibility criteria for:

(a) enrolling in a Government subsidised place, and
(b) applying for a VET Student Loan (this includes Full Fee students).

The LLN result will be used:

(a) to help RMIT identify your educational support needs, and
(b) determine your eligibility for a VET Student Loan.

Credit transfer and recognition of prior learning

At RMIT you can apply for credit so your previous learning or experience counts toward your RMIT course.

Credit is the recognition of previously completed formal study (credit transfer), or informal learning or work experience (recognition of prior learning).

Gaining credit can reduce the number of subjects needed to complete a course, and thus course length and cost.

For more information on applying for credit, visit the RMIT University website.


Successful applicants may apply to defer commencement of their studies. Deferrals may not be permitted in all courses, are not granted automatically and will not be granted to allow the commencement of another tertiary course.

For more information on deferring your course, visit the RMIT University website.
